Welcome to Mammoth Mountain

Mammoth Mountain

Just five hours drive from Los Angeles, or three hours from Reno, lies some of the finest Alpine skiing in the world at the holiday resort of Mammoth Mountain, on the eastern edge of California's Sierra Nevada range. Every year an average of 400 inches (10m) of snow falls on the summit, providing about 3,500 acres of skiable terrain, which can be revelled in by all, beginner to expert, during the November to June season. Despite all the snow, 70 percent of Mammoth's winter days are sunny, providing plenty of time to enjoy the slopes and numerous other facilities at this well-equipped holiday resort, which offers hotel and condominium accommodation.

Information & Facts


There is a very pleasant pattern to the days spent in the Mammoth Mountain resort area: holidaymakers can start after a hearty breakfast with a cross-country ski trail, snowmobile excursion, dog-sledding, tubing, ice-skating or anything else you can find to have fun with in the snow. After lunch take a wander through the pretty village, exploring the outlet stores, or perhaps be cosseted in a day spa or fitness centre. Watch a movie at the local theatre before hitting the pubs for the start of the après ski fun.

English is the most common language but Spanish is often spoken in south-western states.

The US Dollar (USD) is the unit of currency and is divided into 100 cents. Only major banks exchange foreign currency. ATMs are widespread and credit cards and travellers cheques are widely accepted. Travellers cheques should be taken in US Dollars to avoid hassles. Banking hours are Monday to Friday 9am to 3pm.


Après Ski in Mammoth Mountain begins around 3pm each day when the first thirsty skiers and holidaymakers run straight to the door of the Yodler of the Thunder Mountain Bar. Later, visitors head for the local 'in' spots like the Hawaiian flavoured Lakanuki bar/club. Other favourite places are Fever, a high-energy club attached to Dublin's Irish pub, and Whiskey Creek. Sporting types (and visiting Brits) enjoy Grumpy's, a comfortable pub with pool and football tables. Auld Dubliner Irish Pub, the Clocktower Cellar Pub and the Side Door Café are also popular night spots.


The village of Mammoth Mountain itself has plenty of dining options, and holidaymakers who are able to reach further afield will find the surrounding area has dozens of restaurants to choose from, whether it's a quick burger you seek or a full course dining experience. Some of the favourite spots are the Yodler, the Mill Café at the base of Stump Alley Express, and The Canyon Lodge on the mountain. Try the Lakefront Restaurant at Tamarack Lodge for delicious California French cuisine, and the Dry Creek bar also has a good menu.


Mammoth Mountain has an interesting and varied selection of stores that will keep holidaymakers and shop-a-holics enthralled. There are several art galleries, a souvenir shop called 'Mammoth Memories' selling branded items, sports equipment outlets, designer boutiques and even a store that sells Christmas decorations and goodies all year round.
